The #FreeBritney Movement : What Britney Spears Means To Me

When I was 19 years old, I had just lost everything and been forced out of the home for being gay. Whatever earthly possessions I had were the few things I had been able to flee the house with and stash in the trunk of my car.

I got on I-95 north and with everything that was in me, I drove north with the intention of getting out of the South and never looking back.

The CD that I had on repeat at the time in my car stereo was “Circus” by Britney Spears.

As the intensity of the title track builds, we hear a command from Britney:

That car ride was me, Britney and the highway between North Carolina and NYC. And I will never forget it.

You helped me fly to freedom, Britney. Now we won’t rest until you are free.

#FreeBritney

This shocking gay will save you thousands on car insurance.
